Neighbors react to triple shooting at large house party in Colorado Springs, FOX21 News

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. —  Neighbors are in shock after a triple shooting in Colorado Springs.

It happened just after midnight Sunday at a large house party on Soft Breeze Way, which is near North Union Boulevard and Vickers Drive.

Neighbors said they thought it sounded like fireworks at first, but remember hearing about 10 shots, and then chaos started.

“People were jumping fences. They pushed through part of our fence to get away, at which point they found me with my gun and laid down,” said Cameron Miller, who lives in the area.

Miller said he later found out they were just teens trying to escape the chaos.

He said he was terrified about who could have shown up, and said one of the victims was apparently chased.

“They were specifically after someone, because you have the thoughts of somebody just getting heated and opening fire or something along those lines, but the fact that they had chased someone down here and there were shells in this part of the neighborhood,” said Miller.

Miller said the owner of the home where the party apparently happened is very nice and usually keeps to herself. He said recently, he had noticed some activity.

According to police, all three victims — two men and a woman — were taken to local hospitals for treatment. At last check, two of the victims are in critical condition and one is in stable condition.

Police are still looking for suspects, and no one is in custody. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 719-444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP (7867).
